>> a house party ends in disaster. bay area cops think a group of teens is to blame. from across the bay to around the world, the stories that matter on "kpix 5 news this morning." captions by: caption colorado firstname.lastname@example.org >> shot by pavelski, for the hat trick! your realtime captioner is linda macdonald. good morning, everyone. i'm michelle griego. >> hi, everyone. i'm frank mallicoat. it's march 26. time now 6:00. and storm clouds moving in overnight. here we go again. a wet start to the day if you are just about to head out the door the rain is beginning to fall in spots. we have some heavy downpours outside, as well. and likely going to see that continue through this morning. but i think the bulk of it will come through the morning hours. you can see some of the heavier amounts of rainfall moving in through parts of the north bay but now some cells beginning to move a little further to the south. so headed out the door, going to see strong storm systems sliding through some heavy rainfall now into san
francisco. some isolated thunderstorms, too. so it's wet out there now in spots. the temperatures mainly in the 50s. by the afternoon, the clouds going to break up a little bit. partly cloudy in the afternoon. still chance of some widely scattered showers but again, the heaviest rainfall coming through this morning. unfortunately, just in time for the commute. so a little bit wet out there on the roads, liz. we just spotted a few raindrops now falling on the san mateo bridge just within the last few minutes. so westbound and eastbound 92 traffic moving a little slower so just be extra careful as the rain continues to fall. it will continue to fall during the morning commute. mobile 2 drove through oakland on the nimitz no showers yet but it is coming so right now you can bet the weather rush. northbound 880 still moving at the speed limit for the most part only 15 minutes between 238 and the maze. southbound also looks good so far into hayward. so they have not activated the metering lights yet over at the bay bridge at least as of 30
seconds ago when i last checked. they will likely turn them on here any minute at 6:01. we're seeing big delays already building in the cash lanes. so that's usually our first indicator that they are going to switch them on meaning backups in all lanes here pretty shortly. but better news in the fairfield cordelia area southbound 680 all lanes back open it was a solo spinout so the roads are slick in a lot of parts of the bay area. so our accident count is slightly higher than typical at this time of the morning. so far it hasn't been too bad especially in the south bay. northbound 101 still looks great coming out from morgan hill and 280 and the guadalupe parkway still moving at the speed limit. that's your latest "kcbs traffic." frank and michelle, back to you guys. >> thank you. happening today, governor jerry brown will attend the funeral for the mendocino county sheriff's deputy killed in a shootout a week ago today.

afternoon. so partly cloudy in the latter part of the day. the temperatures going to stay cool. but we're not done with the rain. there is more wet weather coming in our direction as the storm door is open. the trough of low pressure is continuing along the west coast. that's ushered in the rain today. then more is going to be headed in our direction probably some showers continuing into thursday. and another storm over the weekend. if you plan to travel around the state be extra careful. stormy weather outside today. you heard liz mention chain requirements in the sierra nevada. a lot of snow up there and it's just heading up there now maybe one to two feet across the higher peaks. snow level dropping down to about 5,000 feet so yeah, the roads going to be a little tough to get on up there throughout the day today and tomorrow, as well. all right. timing out the system here, looks like the heaviest comes through about 10:00, 11:00 and then we get in the afternoon more widely scattered showers. that will continue right into thursday. and looks like then things begin to shift a little further to the north into thursday afternoon. temperature-wise we'll see some 50s and some 60s. toward the afternoon, though,

corner of geary and van ness here in san francisco. a lot of water here on the roads behind me. the storm drain is clear but, you know, since it hasn't rained in a couple of weeks significantly, some of the drains around the area might be clogged. so that's something to be aware of as you're heading out for your morning commute. again, i know i'm stating the obvious. but these are things we have to be reminded of because we're not used to rain. here on the corner of geary and van ness there's a traffic light out. you can see that mess over there. that is because of a traffic accident earlier today. so you're going to want to leave some extra time and remember, bring your boots. bring your hat. be prepared for what is going to be a wet morning ahead. frank and michelle, back to you. >> what about the boots shot? we didn't see them. >> reporter: bring it on. these are my boots. might not be seeing them for the rest of the season. yes. mm-hm. so i was glad i was able to get some use out of them this winter here we are. >> you may need them for the

and the crime wasn't far behind. two people have been shot and killed at vietnamese cafes, the most recent victim a well liked engineer last summer. campos has now made it a priority to investigate citizen complaints. his main weapon? code enforcement officers who make surprise visits and cite establishments for smoking, gambling, tinted windows and nude servers. when the twin palms cafe opened up along capitol expressway in east san jose, advertising good- looking waitresses and restricted customers to 18 and over, neighbors complained. code enforcement officers stopped by and shortly after twin palms closed its doors for good. >> my message to them is, you know, don't do it in san jose. if you are going to open a cafe, open a cafe. but we don't want businesses that masquerade themselves and really they're fronts for gogo nightclubs. >> reporter: san jose police say it's unrealistic to completely eliminate nudity and illegal lap dances in the city.
>> and it's just something that we're going to have to continually be on the lookout for and manage as it appears. >> reporter: and the management at galaxy did not return my phone calls. they have since reopened as paradise and because they were one of the worst offenders in the city, probably the worst, you can bet that the authorities will be watching them very, very closely. back to you. >> well, kiet, what changes have san jose police noticed about these bikini bars and cafes, overall? >> reporter: so they are saying that generally they have noticed it the 40-something bikini bars in san jose are closing on time and that they are all kind of knowing that san jose police are --they have a heightened awareness of and they are staying vigilant. they do say that there are these illegal underground clubs that keep popping up they describe its a game of whack 'em, they pop up and have to stamp them out. councilmember campos will be pushing the council for more budget for more code enforcement officers. >> thank you, kiet do.
6:46 now. it's wet out there but liz says i guess not to be, huh? >> yeah. i mean sparks our accident count goes chp is working 17 different incidents which is not crazy abnormal for a rainy day and no big hot spots. if you are traveling southbound 680 there was an accident reported near willow pass. not even sure if it's blocking lanes. so overall, we are seeing some slowdowns on southbound 680 maybe a little bit slower than normal. but again, it could be a whole lot worse and as lawrence has been talking about the rain is going to continue to fall really through much of the morning commute. so heads up. this may be the best of it right now. westbound highway 4 definitely sluggish right now from pittsburg all the way into concord. you can see some of those speeds some below 20 miles per hour in the westbound lanes in the commute direction. to the south bay now, and in mountain view northbound 85 at 237, this was a solo car spinout. looks like they already cleared it out of our chp reports. so that is no longer an issue
this morning. 101 is a little slow though as you approach mckee coming into san jose. bay bridge traffic stacked up into the macarthur maze. that's your latest "kcbs traffic." with the forecast, here's lawrence. >> been an active morning a lot of rain coming down in spots now. heavy downpours. check out your hi-def doppler radar, lots of yellows, some oranges, even some reds showing up outside right now. but boy, we had some very strong cell moving through san francisco. look at that one off the coastline. just about to head into south san francisco likely to bring some heavy rainfall maybe some more hail. we have had some reports of hail this morning, as well. we could see isolated thunderstorms. so a wild morning. the afternoon the bulk of the moisture comes through and by the afternoon maybe some partly cloudy skies and the temperatures still going to be on the cool side but the rain becoming more widely scattered. still we have more wet weather on the horizon and in fact another storm expected to move in for the weekend.
but between now and then, more rain is on the way. the storm door is open. the trough of low pressure along the west coast, that's going to keep things going and unsettled and wet probably into tomorrow then that rain line may shift further to the north on friday. around the state, you're looking at some showers so if you are traveling today be very careful and in the high country, lots of snow. you need some chains to get up there today and they are going to see maybe one to two feet of snow between now and thursday. snow level 5,000 feet. maybe 2 to 4" right there at lake level. timing out your storm system for you moving through this morning, then as we head in toward the middle of the day, things begin to taper off into the afternoon. just more widely scattered showers still some brief downpours but likely seeing some rainbows, too. then tomorrow morning maybe a couple of leftover raindrops but then things begin to settle down. temperatures expected to be in the 50s and the 60s keeping you cool with the showers today. more unsettled weather to come. chance of some thunderstorms, as well. and then it looks like another storm dropping in on saturday. another one again on monday. maybe showers into tuesday. it just keeps coming. >> do you have 7 mock

you can hear it probably with my gloves. kind of whisping over the top of it. you guys talking about the powder to go skiing and snowboarding? this is the kind of good powder that we normally get to see up here so if you are coming up we are going to be seeing chain control at kingvale. cars and trucks are lined up making a straight line. they are on and they are secure. caltrans has their vehicle in the middle of the intersection making sure they are on or else they will not let you proceed on the eastbound side perhaps going to truckee or into reno this morning. they go from kingvale to the donner lake interchange probably about six or seven miles or so of chain control and then they are lifted. so it's cold up here and it's super windy gusts up to about 45 miles an hour up here at the summit. and the temperature a brisk 20 degrees. a little different up here than it is i'm sure for you guys in downtown san francisco. frank, michelle, back to you guys. >> all right, sean. thank you. new clues this morning in the
